Porco sentencing

A while back, the blog followed the progress of the Porco murder trial, held in Orange County due to a change in venue following the Albany-area murder. As an end note to this chapter of the tale, Christopher Porco was sentenced to two back-to-back 25 year terms. One term is for the murder of his father and one (attempted murder conviction)is for the attack on his mother which resulted in severe injuries, although she survived. As reported in the story, his mother had apparently asked the sentences be served concurrently (at the same time) instead of consecutively (one after the other) but the headline seems to indicate the judge didn't agree.

This is such a sad story--a family torn apart by violence, and now seemingly even more tore aprt as they disagree with each other about Christopher Porco. Brother against brother, daughter against mother, etc.--it's all so sad.

I imagine there will be more litigation from this family over the years. sadly against each other, and much grief and sadness.
